Bodega Del Abad: Abad dom Bueno translates to “The Good Abby” referring to the Carracedo Monastery located in the same town as the winery. Built in 990, the Monastery has survived many wars and bombings. The Abbots were the ones’ who took care of the vineyards and the inspiration for Bodega del Abad, “The Abbot’s Cellar”. The Bodega logo is a copy of a small circular window located in the most important room in the Monastery, ‘La cocina de la Reina’, the royal kitchen. With 40 hectares of Godello and Mencia, the winery uses the most current oenological techniques and best vineyard practices to produce high quality wines.
